Alpaca gifts from Peru

Alpacas and llamas originate from South America and are related to the wild vicuñas and guanacos . During the time of the Incas, llamas were used as pack animals and alpacas as suppliers of meat and wool. You can tell the difference between llamas and alpacas by their appearance: at just one meter long, alpacas are much smaller than llamas and have fluffier wool. The largest population of alpacas can be found in Peru; around 80% of all alpacas live there. Although they have no humps, their ancestry means they belong to the camel family and are therefore also known as New World camelids or Andean camels. Alpacas and llamas are herbivores; they live in the high mountains of the Andes at altitudes of several thousand meters. There they are exposed to harsh weather conditions such as cold, wind, rain and intense sunlight.

Alpacas are valued for their friendly, lovable nature, which is why leisure activities such as alpaca trekking and alpaca yoga are becoming more and more popular. Alpacas are also able to put themselves in the mood of us humans, which is why there are alpaca therapies for illnesses such as dementia, burnout or autism. The greatest special feature of the South American camels is their fine, soft fur, which is ideal for making warmest clothing. Alpacas vary in color from white, to light brown and dark brown, to black, with exciting color combinations and patterns.

There is now a wide range of alpaca gifts available. Whether as an alpaca keyring, mug, decorative item or printed bed linen, the alpaca has become a popular trend animal worldwide alongside unicorns, sloths and the like. It's no wonder, then, that there are so many alpaca fans out there who are particularly happy to receive an alpaca gift for a birthday, Christmas, wedding or other occasion.

This is how llamas and alpacas became trendy animals

The hype about alpacas and llamas came to Germany in 2018. Previous trend animals such as owls and flamingos were quickly forgotten when the first funny alpaca photos came into circulation. Social networks such as Facebook and Instagram, on which pictures and videos were shared and liked millions of times, played a major role in this. A previously unknown animal became a trend animal all over the world. The fashion, household, toy industries, etc. picked up on this new trend and created a variety of products with alpaca designs that hit the nerve of the times.

Why have so many people fallen in love with alpacas and llamas? On the one hand, alpacas are a real eye-catcher, with their big eyes, fluffy wool, happy facial expressions and funny hairstyles. Then the alpaca spitting is a defense mechanism that no other animal species offers and alpaca noises like the cute alpaca humming make us laugh. In terms of their nature, alpacas and llamas are peace-loving, curious escape animals that are all too often visibly torn between curiosity and fear.

Alpaca gift ideas: With us you will find something special

To give family and friends lasting joy, it should be a very special gift and not one that disappears into a corner after a week and is no longer noticed. In our online shop we offer alpaca clothing and accessories of the highest quality made from 100% softest baby alpaca wool. Our alpaca wool comes from Peru and is processed there primarily by women to make high-quality clothing. We only use alpaca wool that is not cruelty to animals and that has been awarded the Responsible Alpaca Standard (RAS). Animal welfare, fair payment for manufacturers and high-quality, long-lasting clothing are important components of our slow fashion philosophy. We also follow this maxim with our alpaca gifts such as alpaca blankets, key rings and alpaca soaps, which are handmade unique pieces from Peru and not kitschy mass-produced goods from China. This benefits the Peruvian manufacturers, who are proud of their craft, and you as the buyer too, because you are giving away a unique piece that comes from the heart.

Soaps made from alpaca wool are also becoming increasingly popular, as they contain natural alpaca keratin, which is particularly gentle on the skin. These soaps are often made by hand by small silk factories, without the addition of palm oil or animal fats. They are so pure and high-quality that alpaca soaps are even suitable for people with neurodermatitis. Our alpaca gifts are of high quality and show how important the recipient is. Our selection of gifts is currently limited, but we are already working on new alpaca gift ideas that we will surprise you with soon.

If you want to give such an experience as a gift, you can find a large number of farms online that offer alpaca hikes or trekking as gift vouchers.
